CVS — DEA: Florida High Prescribers (XLS)

That’s the name of the spreadsheet file containing a list of pain pill prescribing physicians in Florida that CVS has “blacklisted”. At least one doctor is suing CVS over the list, claiming it has branded him a criminal or otherwise less-respectable than other docs not on the black list.

We’d like to see a copy of that file if anyone can send it to us. Email it to me (john) at this domain.

  1. Does ANYONE have this CVS-DEA Florida “High Prescribers” XLS file? CVS stopped filling certain medications from my doctor after 15 years of solid service with them at only 2 of their stores and 2 doctors. They will fill certain Control 2 Medication but not all. I have contacted their main office and they said there was no problem with my doctor and he isn’t on this High Prescriber list as far as me , my doctor or my Lawyer have found out as of April 28th, 2014 and he hasn’t received that letter from CVS either. My health insurance uses CVS Caremark for their mail order and they have no problem filling ALL MY MEDICATION. My CVS Caremark Supervisor called my CVS store and CVS Corporate with me on a conference call and the store said they will not fill my Oxycodone 30MG Quantity 60 per 30 days because of my Doctor and that is what they were told to do by Corporate and by their district and regional managers. Well Hearing it from their pharmacist in charge and not from a customer both Corp. and Caremark said their is no problem with his doctor and he has been filling medication all different types from Control 2, Control, 3, Control 4, even Control 5 and none controls form 15 years and it is at the pharmacists discretion but the pharmacist only said no Control 2s will be filled for that patient with that Dr. anymore. I had filed a Ethics Complaint from a website that at the time advertised that it was an independent board in Florida and CVS, the store, and people named would not know it was me until absolutely necessary and it was a lie the report went right to CVSs’ own Ethics Department. Now ANY PHARMACY I go to Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Publix, Medicine Shoppe, ETC.. you get the drift, they all tell me the same thing either they don’t carry any of my medication (even asthma medication and 800mg Ibuprofen) or they are not taking on new patients or they don’t fill for my doctor. I few of my friends who are pharmacists at a few major chains said they heard about my ethics complaint and were told not to fill for me. They will lose their jobs and could get sued by their employers if they were to come forward since it was said in e-mail and in person. As much as I am suffering I would never do that to my friends and risk they spouses and children. So it’s Not just the DEA IT”S CVS making things up as they go along and it spreads through the pharmacy grapevine and you suffer for doing what your supposed to do. I started going through withdrawals after 5 days of no medication and I toughed it out because after all these years I was only chemically dependent which is normal for ANY CONTROLLED MEDICATION AFTER TAKING IT FOR 5 DAYS and the pharmacist said he wasn’t going to fill for me anymore and if I had a problem then file a complaint and call Corporate and said good luck with the withdrawals and walked away! This pharmacist was the last one to fill my medication and I had a friend who is a pharmacist go with me and drive me since I didn’t feel safe enough to drive while starting the withdrawals to see if my pharmacist would call another store and see if they would fill for me and also so I had an eye witness incase something happened and at the time I was glad I did but the report did nothing. I still have the report and this is how my case ended ” Please note that your report to the Ethics Line has been reviewed by the appropriate levels of management. Please note that CVS pharmacists are expected to adhere to specific dispensing protocols. CVS Caremark cannot share further details of its review of this matter with you. This report is now closed.” There was no actions taken what so ever. Even a criminal record I found from out of state with a guilty plea dealing with Controls in an old job didn’t matter. I was told they knew about it and it didn’t have anything to do with his license in Florida!!!

    I highly recommend anyone who is having problems getting their medication to go through their Insurance companies mail order if at all possible. I just set mine up and I had a choice of a either a 90 day or 30 day supply and I went with the 30 day even thou the 90 day comes out cheaper at the end (Until my deductible is met) but I didn’t want the responsibility of having that much in my house at once. Everyone where I live helps me out physically and around my house since I can hardly walk and need 10 spinal surgeries and 9 vertebrae replaced and my spine straightened among other surgeries.
    Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I want to apologize if anything in here I said offended anyone or hurt anyone’s feelings. That is and was NEVER my intention. This was something I felt other people like me who has problems know they are not alone and there are ways of getting help!
